Bannock Brae Estate

Bannock Brae Estate is the fulfilment of Catherine & Crawford’s dream to live in sunny Central Otago and produce world-class Pinot noir.

From the very beginning the pursuit of quality has determined every decision made on the vineyard and in the winemaking process. This philosophy has quickly been reflected in award-winning wines. Over ten vintages, Bannock Brae’s Central Otago Pinot noir has been awarded more than 20 Gold medals and ‘Champion Wine of the Show’ in NZ wine competitions. On this basis, it is New Zealand’s most-awarded single vineyard Pinot noir producer.

Our History

Catherine & Crawford Brown converted a ‘rabbit paddock’ into a vineyard in 1998/1999. Since then, they have produced award-winning Pinots and a barrel-fermented Dry Riesling.

Their cellar door operates at their home which enjoys stunning views. You will receive a warm welcome, and be able to enjoy the view while sampling their wonderful wines.
